My condolences goes out to the entire family of the late Levernard Alexander Speight Jr. Enfield NC.

Just received a phone call that my brother Speight had expired due to some complications from a recent surgery. My heart is so heavy because this brother was always encouraging me to do what I do.

Speight was a longtime faithful and dedicated member of the Rocky Mount NC NAACP. At most of the NAACP events he worked the door greeting others when they arrived at an event. He will truly be missed.

Fighting Crime And Cleaning Up Rocky Mount NC So Who Is Behind The Group?

The DCN received some information recently that the person behind the Fighting Crime and Cleaning Up Rocky Mount NC is a female bail bondsman. Sources say that the page is targeting black folks to help them find the folks that have hired them to get them out of jail. Ain’t nothing wrong with that, what a brilliant idea.

I have been trying to figure out why the group was targeting the Rocky Mount City Council on a political note but that is probably because of a political movement such as the Nash County Sheriff race since there has been mention of atleast one candidate for Sheriff. But this is just my opinion.

Black folks you better recognize what groups you like and how you respond to them.

I will say it again, I ain’t mad with them, but I am not ignant to the games they are playing either. I know they are not partners with the local law enforcement and that the information is just public information and anyone can obtain it. And anyone can have a scanner in their home so they can hear when calls are being made to law enforcement in real time. All I am saying is know the source and know what time it is. Don’t be used!

Dickens touched many lives throughout Edgecombe County and abroad through the Edgecombe County Agricultural Extension Office, Edgecombe County Board of Education, The Annual Dr. Martin L. King Jr. Celebrations and Dickens Funeral Home Services Inc. but not limited to. He was always full of jokes and would make you laugh with that unique voice. Just a couple of weeks ago I videoed a funeral service and he was still serving the people up until his time of passing. He will truly be missed.
